Premium Guitar Straps Coming This Fall!

As many of you may have heard, we are currently developing a line of Premium Guitar Straps. They are not available for sale yet, but they will be soon with support from our community! We are currently raising money via a crowdfunding campaign so that we can bring these new wall hangers to market.  Please help us by investing at

Here is what we have planned!

Thalia Custom Straps brings premium customizable leather straps to the masses at amazing price points.  Starting at around $60, Thalia customers will be able to choose from a wide range of premium leather straps with integrated wood and shell inlays.  

Thalia Straps are designed for our build-to-order supply chain model.   Be prepared to be amazed at the workmanship and variation that we bring to this category!  P.S.  We will launch with a Vegan strap option too!

Thalia has Retooled to Fight the Corona Virus

Several of my friends & family members are healthcare workers serving on the front lines in the fight against the Corona Virus.  And my daughter Thalia plans to follow in their footsteps, going off to college in the fall as a pre-med major.  I am disheartened by the grave reality that these brave women and men are risking their lives to provide necessary care.  As we "shelter in place" and do our part to stop the spread of this disease, I have been sleepless wanting to do something more to help them.

I want to be as transparent as possible during this challenging time and give you some insight on how the corona virus is affecting us and our ability to serve our loyal customers. First, we are all healthy and none of our employees have had any symptoms or been tested for the virus. 

However, we were given an order by our county authorities on March 12 to "shelter in place" and cease operations until April 8th (now extended until May 4.) 

Our Future in Custom Guitars

I have been working on a very "big idea” for our company related to custom guitars.  Now to be clear, I do not intend to start building our own guitars.  Instead I plan to partner with iconic guitar brands (who already have the guitar building part nailed) and customize their guitars.   In this model, Thalia will become a guitar “hot rod” shop.  We will start with stock guitars and upgrade them to our customer’s spec or to our own limited-edition vision.
